He earned a 30/30 on his cognitive assessment, but those around him believe otherwise.

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders held a briefing today to announce the results of President Trump's medical evaluation, which took place last week. The evaluation, which covered both Trump's physical and mental health, was done by White House doctor Dr. Ronny Jackson, and he concluded that Trump has "absolutely no cognitive or mental issues whatsoever." 

Interestingly enough, Dr. Jackson revealed in the briefing that Trump underwent the Montreal Cognitive Assessment test and not only passed the exam but received a perfect 30 out of 30 score. The test is designed to screen for mild cognitive impairment and mental conditions such as Alzheimer's, but it's not comparable to a psychological examination, according to The Daily Dot. Turns out, as far as Dr. Jackson is concerned, Trump is healthy and stable as can be—aside from being slightly overweight. "He has incredible genes, I just assume," said Jackson. 

After Jackson summarized the President's results and gave a lengthy description of his proposed new diet plan, reporters at the briefing continued to stress the mental health concerns. Since the release of Michael Wolff's book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, speculation into the president's mental health has been at an all-time high. Despite his insistence of being a "stable genius," many close to the President insist that his mental health is declining. Reporters at the briefing referenced his erratic tweets, to which Jackson replied, "Twitter doesn't involve me as a doctor."
